TMBA466: The Dos and Don’ts of Hiring Apprentices

TMBA466: The Dos and Don’ts of Hiring Apprentices post image

It's no secret that Dan and Ian love hearing from the listeners of this show.

This week, we received a question from Ben McAdam. Some of you might remember Ben from his earlier appearances on this podcast.

Ben reached out to us to ask about our recent decision to hire a new apprentice.

For those of you who are not aware, we brought someone new onto our team recently and we'd like to talk about it here today.

On this week's episode, you'll hear all about why we decided to find a new apprentice, and what that process was like.

We'll also be sharing a comprehensive list of "Dos and Don'ts" when it comes to hiring your own apprentice, as well as some quick tips on how you can find the apprenticeship of your dreams.

Dan and Ian are still resting up after hosting 350 entrepreneurs at their annual DC BKK event in Bangkok last week.

While they were at that event, they had the opportunity to speak to so many entrepreneurs about their business struggles and successes throughout 2018.

In light of those conversations, we've decided to address some of the common topics we've heard throughout that conference on today's episode.

This week, we are discussing the five trends that internet businesses need to consider for the upcoming year. We'll be talking location freedom, hiring practices, conference strategies, and much, much more. 

TMBA464: 5 Reasons Your Presentation Might Suck

TMBA464: 5 Reasons Your Presentation Might Suck post image

We are fresh off the heels of DC BKK 2018, our annual conference that we host in Bangkok.

It's safe to say that in the many years of running that conference, as well as attending other conferences around the globe, Dan and Ian have seen quite a few amazing presentations from speakers.

Not every presentation can be a home run, though, and we have seen our fair share of bad ones too.

This week, Dan is talking about the science behind a great presentation, and specifically the five reasons your presentation might suck.

The ability to give a great presentation is an important skill set for entrepreneurs. Even if you aren't planning on giving a presentation any time soon, learning these principles can help make you a better communicator in your business.
